Something to think about.
A Sorrowful Truth
7 And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don’t know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus. 9 They will be punished with eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power. 10 When he comes on that day, he will receive glory from his holy people—praise from all who believe. And this includes you, for you believed what we told you about him. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10
I know it has fallen out of style and is seldom preach on any more but the reality still exists. Those who choose to refuse the Gospel of Christ will face a terrible existence in the life that is to come. I would like you to notice it says “eternal destruction forever separated from the Lord.” It says eternal destruction, for something to be eternally destroyed it must exist eternally. It says forever separated from God. To be permanently separated from God you must exist eternally. Unlike the current wisdom of humanity, we will not cease to exist. Nor will we be transformed into eternal energy or matter. We will stand before God in our eternal bodies and reap the rewards of our choices. For some it will be to share and experience the unfettered glory of God. For other’s it will be to experience His permanent wrath. It may not be popular or politically correct to mention such things. But it will be a sorrowful truth to those who refuse to believe.
